This class contains pathways of the biosynthesis of amines and polyamines. These compounds play a variety of roles in metabolism, including acting as osmoprotectants, keeping DNA in a condensed state, and serving as intermediates in the synthesis of macromolecules.
L-arginine degradation III (arginine decarboxylase/agmatinase pathway),
